Hi,
Some laptops do only come with one memory expansion slot.

In some cases the slots are on top of each other so one of them maybe out of sight if the RAM is in the top slop.
The best way to determine this is to take out the memory (make sure the laptop is switched off and that all power is removed) and look underneath the memory to see if you can see another slot. If you can then there will the extra slot and you can install your new memory.

If you can't then the laptop will no doubt have just the one slot.


Regards.

Most likely, no. So you'll probably have to buy a single 4g ram card or something, and sell your old one. Possibly, there are ram socket extenders, like usb ones, which split one into two ports. Though I'm not sure if they exist xD

How do I add 8 GB RAM to MY 1 GB RAM Gateway 834GM system?


Sorry but your system will only upgrade to 2 gig of RAM
http://panam.gateway.com/s/PC/R/5293/5293sp3.shtml
but where your current memory is installed there are two locking levers on each socket one on top one on bottom press on those to release the memory and remove the current memory stick, now when installing the new memory make sure the little notch on the memory stick lines up with the one on the memory socket when your sure its correct just firmly press the new memory stick into the socket the two llever locks should lock automatically if not you can do it manually, take care not to put to much pressure on the memory stick. hope this helps

Have asus p4s8x mob,when adding 3rd stick of memory (1gb) total of 3gb.computer hangs on startup 1long 3 short beeps. if i remove one old stick and leave new with old (2gigs total)it works fine,also works...


The Asus Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX uses PC-3200 type memory and usually ships from Asus with 0MB of RAM. The Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX supports up to 2GB of RAM. Maximizing your system memory will allow your Asus Motherboards to operate as fast as possible and offer the most productive environment.
RAM modules must be installed in special locations on the motherboard called Sockets. These memory sockets are what hold the RAM module in place and can range from 1 to 16 or more. Banks consist of a group of 1 or more sockets. A system can have 1 or more of these banks of sockets. If a system has more than 1 socket in a bank, a Kit must be purchased for that bank. A kit is simply more than one, usually 2 or 4, like RAM modules. All sockets in a bank must be filled, and for such systems we sell memory in a kit. Typically you will see 2x512MB or 2x256MB signifying you are purchasing 2 units of 512MB RAM modules or 2 units of 256MB RAM modules, respectively.
The Asus Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX has 1 bank(s) which have 2 socket(s) in each bank for a total of 2 memory socket(s). This means the Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX can support up to 2 individual RAM modules.
We recommend you purchase the largest capacity RAM module each time you purchase memory. The reason for this is if you decide to upgrade again later and all your memory sockets are filled, you will not need to discard the already installed lower capacity memory.
Below is a visual representation of the memory bank(s) and socket(s) configuration for the Asus Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX.

I just need to upgrade the memory on a Dell Precision 530MT.. can't seem to find the exact type of memory it needs.. any ideas?


HELLO Paul

When installing memory modules in the system board sockets and not using the optional memory riser boards, observe the following guidelines:
  • Each memory socket on the system board must be occupied either by a RIMM or a CRIMM.

  • Memory sockets must be upgraded in matched pairs. In other words, two sockets in a pair must contain modules of identical capacity, number of components, and speed. See "System Board Memory Components" to identify pairs of sockets.

  • Mixed pairs of ECC and non-ECC modules all function as non-ECC.

  • Be sure to install a RIMM in socket 1 first (closest to the processor) before installing modules in the other sockets.

  • The system board supports PC600 and PC800 memory modules.

Adding ram to an e-machine model w 3502


According to the eMachines site, this model comes with 512MB of RAM, expandable to 2GB. It came with 400MHz PC3200 DDR RAM installed, so you can get that type and know it will work. RAM is available from many suppliers. I use Newegg (www.newegg.com) and Tiger Direct (www.tigerdirect.com) for most of my computer parts.

If you're asking how to install more RAM, it's simple. Just line the module up with its socket on the system board and press straight down on it so it latches in place. The contacts are laid out so that you can't put the module in backwards. Once the memory is installed the motherboard will automatically detect the new amount. You don't need to change any settings on the board or in software.

If you need more information just post a follow-up!

Unable to start - do not get post.


First of all that is too old system that you are using, problems can be your CPU's golden legs are not connected well on motherboard, second your ram memory is not working good, maybe is slower or faster than that motherboard can receive.
First of all disconnect everything from motherboard ...if it does not work :

1. Remove cooler from cpu
2. remove cpu from socket, turn around CPU and look at those golden legs if they are moved aside
3. if they are moved turn them back on the line use needle or small pocket knife to do it and do it carefully
4. carefully place CPU back in socket
5. put CPU protective grease
6. put back cooler on CPU
7. remove ram memory from slots
8. look at the golden legs if there is no broken use clean cotton swabs and pure medical alchohol and clean the ram golden legs put the ram back in slot
9, do the same with your graphics card if you are using AGP slot
10. put back power cable 20 pins and 4 pins
11. Connect keyboard and monitor cable
12. Use screwdriver to shorten the power on pins

If it does not work than you should say goodbye to that motherboard and old technology that you are using and buy motherboard socket 775 or socket AM2 and new cpu and ram its cheap this days to have real dual core computer.

RAM has to be

Four 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets

Supports PC3200 (400 MHz) /PC2700 (333 MHz) / PC2100 (266 MHz) DDR DIMM type

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory module is 1 GB

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB
It has to be the same.


• If you are replacing a memory module, put the
new memory module in the same memory slot
from which the old memory was removed.
Or
• If you are adding a memory module, install the
new module into the socket nearest the
preinstalled module, and install additional
modules in the next available sockets
